Well, within four weeks of the ‘big bushfire’ there is some regrowth happening-even before the rains!

Grass trees sprouting up just three weeks after the fire

Time will tell whether some of the Spearwoods and Melaleucas will grow back, but the Grasstrees certainly have.

Spring has sprung at McCarthy Park!

We have been very lucky with the weather this year- warm enough and wet enough for everything to grow! The wheat/barley ¬†mix we sowed in the ‘back paddock’ as a food source for the sheep has been very successful.

Also, the rabbits have had kittens, the sheep have had lambs, the chooks have had chicks and a duck is sitting on eggs!
